Broadcast Wav has become the standard format in music production; used in mixing, mastering, archiving and transmission to online distributors.
But how can anyone who receives a Wav file be certain it’s authentic? That it’s the approved version not a reference? That it hasn’t been re-processed or watermarked? That it’s for MFIT not the CD?
Sterling has developed Certified Masters, a complete authentication system for Wav files.
Using our online verification tool, anyone with a wav file created by Sterling after September 1, 2013 can confirm the following:
• Status – approved, awaiting approval or cancelled
• Intended Purpose – MFIT, HD Tracks, 16 bit for CD, 24 bit for archiving
• Provenance – The source the file was created from as well as the date and engineer
• Verification – Guarantees that the audio has not been altered
